👤 About Me
Hi, I’m Leonora. I’m a full time student in computer science at Beloit. I build and break open source software for fun.
You can find me on the Fediverse, on GitHub, on Patreon, at nora AT nora DOT codes, and everywhere, with my PGP Key.
Software Engineering Intern at CancerIQ, Inc. during Summer 2018. I developed user interface components and designed algorithms used to analyze health data, as well as working with DevOps technologies including Kubernetes, Apache Kafka, Prometheus, and Grafana.
Software Engineering Intern at GudTech, Inc. during Summer 2017. I used agile methodology to work with a small team, gaining experience with Go and the inner workings of Docker in a Service Oriented Architecture environment. I created a developer tooling used for onboarding and external (SDK) development.
This is a selection of my experience. See my full resume for more, including volunteer positions and college work experience.

I’ve written tutorials on type systems and what can be done with them (for instance, session types), binary reverse engineering, and application security topics like embedding malware in PDF files.
I’ve also written about topics ranging from hacker superstitions and how spending way too much time customizing my desktop is productive, actually to repairable hardware and free software and why it matters, for individuals and for society as a whole.
